Admissions F.A.Q.'s

How will my SBU education shape me?

You can get a diploma anywhere, but SBU is a place to receive a comprehensive education both in and out of the classroom. Beyond simply receiving a degree, how will your education develop you into the type of person you want to be?

How will SBU build community for me?

Your home away from home: SBU is a place where you live and grow. How can you learn from the people with whom you surround yourself?

Where does SBU fit on my faith journey?

Christianity should not be an isolated part of your life, so SBU incorporates faith in everything we do – in the classroom, dorms and social atmosphere. How can you be challenged to grow spiritually while pursuing a college education?

Will my SBU education be an affordable option for me?

SBU is a worthwhile investment because of the value of what we have to offer. Most importantly, you do not have to walk through the financial process alone; so how can we partner with you to make SBU an affordable reality?

How will I be challenged?
If you want to grow, you must be challenged. At SBU you will find people to walk through those challenges with you. What kind of person do you want to become, and what will it take to get there?
